We are so glad you like them! We have a couple scraped knuckles to show, and the stones really did come out great. The land owners, Tommy and his wife, were so accomodating, and they mowed all the weeds. I love it, love that you can get all the information off the stones, can actually read them! Really completed that project.
Take care Dona!

Thank you and you are most welcome! :) Actually it was a dual effort of cleaning and chalking the stones. Amanda, who originally located the cemetery, and I went out there yesterday to clean, chalk and photograph the stones. We are pretty proud of how they turned out :)
I happened to find more Gillaspie's in another cemetery today. Harg, Boone County is a couple miles south west of the Gillaspie Cemetery on Turner Farm Rd.
I made memorials for them - I spelled their names as they are on the stone. Olivet Christian Church Cemetery, Boone County.
Just an FYI

I made it my goal today - you should have seen me. I was like Indiana Jones searching for that cemetery! Like I said, the family that owns it is very friendly, and said I could come back out. It would need to be cleaned up a bit to figure out who has foot stones and facing which directions. It's no problem, but it may have to wait until the spring.

ok - found the family plot (what a hunt that was!!) The plot is in rough shape, and all the headstones were carved from that very soft, white stone. The pictures didn't come out very well. I didn't want to use chalk on the headstones without your permission. The family whose land this is on was very friendly, and said I can come out again any time.

I see you have a lot of memorials in a Gilasepe family plot. Any idea where it might be so I get some picture for you?

I'll try and work on this when I get a chance. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the info!
Thank you so much for the Stoddard headstone photos. Your kindness is appreciated.

Donna, thank you so very much for taking and posting the tombstone photo for Martha Ann Hoagland Taylor Gudgeon. It is greatly appreciated a number of other family members as well as myself.

So, Robert Wade does have a headstone? It is good to know for sure so I will keep looking. I took pictures of the church and the sign. Hopefully they'll be up today. When I go back, I'll be happy to get a shot of the cemetery. That one for the other Bugg (Maryanne?) was right next to your request so I assume they're related somehow. Take care.
